When you look at the position of something, it says 'Leading' under X and Y, what does it do?

I'm afraid that you'll have to give more details than that. What is it that you're trying to do?

OK, strictly speaking only one of those parameters applies to leading. Leading refers to the space between lines of text. In that context the Y parameter is correct. The X parameter adjusts what is regarded as kerning - the horizontal space between letters.

'Leading' is a typographic term originating in the days of metallic typesetting - from the dreaded Wikipeda "In typography, leading /ˈlɛdɪŋ/ refers to the distance between the baselines of successive lines of type. The term originated in the days of hand-typesetting, when thin strips of lead were inserted into the forms to increase the vertical distance between lines of type."

Yup. That's the reason that it should be pronounced "ledding", but most graphic artists I know pronounce it "leeding".
